R2,821,234.00 Awarded in RAF Settlement

updated: 31-Jul-15

Claiming against the Road Accident Fund (RAF) demands expertize and tenacity, and this mixed with the legal genius of de Broglio Attorneys, is a recipe for repeated successful settlements in these matters. de Broglio Attorneys have over two decades of experience in suing the RAF fruitfully and continue to strive forward as a leading legal force in personal injury claims. 

They recently settled a matter where their client, Jan Nel*, had been a driver involved in a head on collision. He had been taken to hospital by ambulance where he was admitted for one week due to his injuries. He suffered serious fractures to his left leg, a fractured right kneecap and a lower spinal injury.  

Jan had seen an advert on the television about de Broglio Attorneys and their services as personal injury attorneys and he decided to pursue a claim against the RAF. He said, “The TV advert was interesting for me, and people told me to phone them.” He contacted de Broglio Attorneys and they accepted his instruction to proceed with a claim.

The accident affected Jan’s life in many aspects. His injuries severely affected his employment prospects and he lost out on promotions and a bright working future. de Broglio Attorneys employed a panel of leading medico-legal experts to investigate his matter and to provide reports to be used in his case. Every aspect of his life was looked at and the effects of his injuries on his life considered to ensure that he would be properly compensated by his RAF claim. 

His RAF claim was eventually settled in the North Gauteng High Court for R2,821,234.00. a fantastic settlement welcomed by de Broglio Attorneys and their client. 

Jan was overjoyed with the settlement and said, “The process was very quick, the people were communicating with me a lot. The settlement amount that we got was great. I’m glad that everything is past and everything is good. They must just keep doing what they can do.”

This case is another testament of the brilliant results that de Broglio Attorneys are able to achieve in their litigation against the RAF, true industry leaders.
